White of Fiano

"Picariello’s Fiano di Avellino '906' is a single vineyard bottling from Summonte, the higher of the two communes where Picariello's grapes come from. The winemaking is very similar to the regular Fiano di Avellino, but the wine is aged longer on the lees and held in bottle for an extended period before release. The altitude of the vineyard gives excellent acidity, and although the wine is very naturally made, it’s as clean as a whistle. Aromas and flavors of citrus, herbs, and green apple, very long on the palate and very age worthy. An outstanding Italian white wine. This wine is only produced in colder vintages when the grapes reach high enough acidity." -Oliver McCrum
